Today was a weird day. Had 4 hours sleep so not off to best start have breakfast then shower something i hate to do i prefer to get ready before breakfast whenever i am in the presence of someone. A weird thing i know. Waited till 10 went to dentist have a massive fear from bad experiences as a kid was shitting myself up until i sat in the chair. Then was still scare while he did the check up worried he say i need something huge because i did irreversable damage to teeth. Thankfully not he said everything is good i asked about the last dentist said i needed a filling he said its 50/50 its pointless doing it unless you need it like if it gives you pain. I bet some sort of teeth ethic code sort of admirable. So i did that i was shitting my pants i asked the guy a bunch of questions super helpful gave me some good advise on the things i wanted to do. So that is one of the things off my list. Then i went on a dog walk quite long 1 hour 20mins feet was hurting like shit. Had a really good time. Then had lunch was fish and chips and peas thank god it was not mushy peas cant stand them. Also it was calorie controlled my 1 meal i have something id consider unhealthy. Then i layed around couldnt do anything in terms of going out. Because i was waiting to see doctor i should of saw last wednesday so i didnt wakt to miss that. Also its friday so id have to wait till monday. So i saw him the room was in use so he asked me a bunch of questions he needed to ask quite personal and in depth i wont go into detail might bring up some memories. It was a good talk really like the doctor such a cool person. We then went into the medical room checked my feet i told him about how it feels like its on fire and the throbbing sensation with added stabbint pains he said i am not making it better exercising he is right but i cant lay in bed it hurts worse like so much. He fully understood said i will send you to our gp who specialises in soft tissue damage to see if i can get a sterioud injection which sounds like pain but i deserve it. After that the day was boring i had plans of going to places but had to sort this out today my physical health comes first said my head nurse you going out can wait a day. Totally right just in the mode of wanting to get better everyone is telling me to slow down but i dont think i am going fast enough. I have some plans for tommorrow going to visit a few places that i shouls of in the week but couldnt because i had the shits going 20 times a day would not of been good but its better now still like 7 times a day but it will improve. I will write a list of things i want to do then get back on what i did thank you all for reading if anyone is hope you are crushing

Have you tried soaking them and massaging them before bed? I've been treating my feet for a few days (Got feet like a Hobbit...too many years of skipping around barefoot...I could fire walk without ANY mental training!) and they feel much better. Hot, salty soak and then a good massage with peppermint oil - makes them feel all floaty :D

Doesn't matter if you use olive oil or a cheap moisturiser - just give those wooties some tender loving care. :hug:
